I learned many years ago that the ego is equated with self-hate. It is the ego that causes us to compare ourselves to others only to find ourselves at the lower end of the comparison.
The ego grasps for fame, recognition, superiority, control and superficial attachments that it deems us to need in order to be good enough. And yet, the ego is never satisfied.
It is like trying to fill a bottomless pit. The go traps us into thinking that we have to somehow out-do our so-called competition.
On the other hand, the wisdom of the soul knows we are here to learn and grow. To share and contribute. To make our life matter, no matter how seemingly small our good deeds are, they do matter, and they do make a difference in the lives of others, starting with our own.
It took me a long time to get a grip over my own ego. My perilous mistake was not following the higher guidance I was given to stop all non-essential spending. I had a great weakness where I would simply buy everything I saw that I liked. My ego combined with my weakness under it landed me from living in an exclusive country club penthouse to my car for eight months. It was a brutal lesson that I had to learn, and unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.
However, that vastly crucial lesson has now saved me for the rest of my life. So now I want to share some tips with you to help you know when it is ego or your higher integrated wisdom that is running your life.

I’m excited to make a difference for YOU!
It is no doubt that so many of you are going through deep challenges on many levels of your life. Some of you feel pain and confusion. Others feel torn, not sure of the “right” path to take. And many of you feel a sense of disillusionment as you face your challenges and wonder what is the best course of action to take.
So here is your answer.
The only course of action to take stems from the deepest truth within your heart. Your head will drive you in many directions as the ego loves drama, as well as creating scenarios within the mind that take you off into many different directions, except into your heart.
You see, life on Earth right now is forcing each and every soul to awaken to your complete Divine essence on all levels. Not just in career and relationships, but with your essence, your truth, what you really came into this life to be, feel, do and experience as your grandest Self – your Higher Self in physical form.
So the “challenges” are here to get you to honor your truth – to move you out of fear and uncertainty and into what your authentic alignment with Divine Source means – living it all out in every area of your life.
This requires tremendous courage. It requires you to reach deep within and ask yourself what feels so true to you? Ask yourself. Allow the head games to be washed away by connecting solely to the core of your heart center – for it is in that core where your Divine essence, and all of your answers dwell.
When you can be and express your truth, in all areas, on all levels, without fear of any kind, you will come to know an inner peace, a relief, a sudden burst of inspiration, because you have consciously connected to your Divine Source Energy, and this is the energy that will clear the way for you.
So many of you are beaming on all levels. Please continue to reach out and help those that have been living in fear, reach out and share more of your services, your heartfelt guidance and your messages – they are so deeply needed now.
Trust and know that every situation with which you are now faced is there to bring you into a Higher level of Spiritual growth, and into full alignment with your Divine Heritage.
You are all one. You are all Divine. You are all here to share, be and express every glorious facet of your Divine nature.
I strongly encourage you to take a bold step into your deepest truths – into your heart – and if you feel fear or uncertainty, look deeper into your heart. It is your heart essence – your pure spiritual alignment from the heart center that will lift you above any and every seeming obstacle.
There will be many opportunities to come for you to stand in your truth. I guide you to do so at all times.
Please keep one thing in mind at all times – always put out, or give, or do only that which you would like to receive in return. Another suggestion for you during your challenges and transitions is to give yourself the advice you would give to a dear friend who is in your shoes. This will help you much in clearing away the fears and uncertainties that have been keeping you stuck on any level.
You are so deeply rare and special. Every one of you. You are so vastly needed – even your smile makes such a difference. Trust that you are going through a few challenges because they will take you to a Higher place – and that is to your Highest Divine Essence while in physical form.
